Transcript of Narrative Writing

What you need to write a Narrative
Define and explore the concept the Narrative writing.

“Today you are You,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive
who is Youer than You.”
― Dr. Seuss

Give example's to have a complete understanding of how to use Narrative writing.
Narrative Writing
Answer any questions and Write a short narrative during class.
The general characteristics of a narrative writing include:
Revealing something of importance – narratives make a point and that point is usually defined in the first sentence but may appear as the last sentence in the first.
Describing characters and setting vividly – bring the story to life by using your senses to depict the events of the story: how does it look, sound, feel, smell.
Usually written in the
first person (speaks directly to reader)
, that is using, “I”. However,
third person (the writer know's everything about the characters feeling's and thought's)
can also be used.
Narration: A story that is written to explain what, where,when, and who. It reveals what a reader should learn. Narration paragraphs are usually written in chronological order.
I do well in school. People think I am smart. That is not true. In fact, three years ago I struggled in school. Two years ago I decided to make five changes. I decided I would be interested in what was being taught regardless of what anyone else thought. I decided I would work hard every day and never give up on any assignment. I decided to never fall behind. And I decided to make school my first priority over friends and fun. Soon I became an active participant in the classroom discussions. Then my test scores started to rise. I still remember the first time that someone made fun of me because “I was smart.” It seems to me that being smart is simply working hard and being interested. After all, learning a new video game is hard work even if you are interested; it just doesn’t help you out in school.
Sarah's Narrative:
Neil Armstrong
Neil Armstrong had quite a day on July 21, 1969. This was the day he became the first man to walk on the moon. The journey began several days earlier when on July 16th the Apollo 11 launched from Earth headed to the moon. On board with Neil Armstrong were Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin. The crew had landed on the moon in the Sea of Tranquility a day before the actual walk. Upon Neil’s first step onto the surface of the Earth’s moon, he said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” It sure was. What a day!
It dose not have to be Non-Fictional
